    @JuliusBorisov

    I'm curious about "Mouse support", so I'm gonna ask it again:
    what do you mean exactly by "Mouse support"? Is it like playing on a desktop computer...?

  • JuliusBorisovJuliusBorisov Member, Administrator, Moderator, Developer Posts: 22,017
    I saw your question then and couldn't get a full response from our developers. I believe so, yes - it should be like playing on a PC. See https://mcmw.abilitynet.org.uk/using-mouse-your-device-android-pie for example.

    That's great, I'll certainly test it when the beta ships on iOS devices...
    In the meantime, let's see if some Android users leave feedback about it...

    Anything in particular that should be watched out for when testing?

    The Android 11 import is one of the big issues, but only final saves can be imported, right?

    We're interested to hear your thoughts on issues like running the game, crashes, freezes, performance. There was an infamous "you might have not purchased" error. The import issue is important, we wonder if it's now fixed. In theory, it should allow you to import any save. The DLC issues also should be fixed - we are interested to hear if now it all works. Keyboard and mouse ofc if you have them. Would be great to hear about Chromebooks.

    If I try to import a game into BG2:EE, it doesn't show my BG:EE save files.

    I don't remember getting a dialogue for access request at the installation or start, but I checked in my tablet's settings, both games have permission to access files/data storage.

    I will check if a final save appears there, of course, if I ever manage to get through the game fast enough.

    A second issue is a weird shifting of the screen which happened a few times when I tried to export a character file in BG:EE.

    Can't interact with it anymore when that happens.

    When I minimize (by showing all running apps) and then choose the game window again , it goes back to normal.
    It doesn't always happen, but I could reproduce it a few times.

    Device: Samsung Galaxy Tab S6, Android 11

    I don't know if this is something you have any power over, but I'm unable to install the beta version of BG1:EE. I signed up for the beta for both BG1 and BG2. The BG2:EE beta update installed on the first try, but I've attempted repeatedly for the other and the install won't complete. I'm on a Chromebook, running the latest version of Chrome OS (91.0.4472.147). Not crazy about the thought of deleting BG1 and trying to install it fresh, as I'll lose my save files.

    Whats about Siege of Dragonspear?? Sounds like the import function is still buggy anyway - but I want to do the full BGEE-->SoD-->BG2EE journey

    At the moment the beta is available only for BG:EE and BG2:EE on Android. We will need a bit of patience.

    Additionally to the import problem, I still get that bug where party members get stuck on top of each other and their colored circles merge into one. As far as I remember, the patch should have fixed that?

    Here's a screenshot, they were all supposed to go where Branwen is standing, as the markers indicate, but Xan and my main are merged.

    Also, I don't know if that's intended behaviour, but I play with AI deactivated and still my party members attack the next enemy nearby when the one they were targeting is dead.

    The updated beta version is available! Now the beta is enabled not only for BG:EE & BGII:EE, but also IWD:EE!

    - Updates to Icewind Dale: Enhanced Edition
    - Improved keyboard functionality (Chromebooks)
    - Multiplayer Wi-Fi Notification Improvements

    Please make sure to play and fill in a short survey!

    *The import bug (especially important for BG:EE-BGII:EE) on Android 11 is still being worked on.

    On the tablet everything (except for the import of course) seems to work normally until now.

    However, on my phone, when I'm walking through an area and switch to map, the walking speed slows down a lot. Doesn't seem to matter if area map background is checked on or off.

    Device: Samsung Galaxy S7 (SM-G930U) with 4 GB RAM and Android 8.

    See two posts above yours, at the end of the notes for the last beta update. It's still being worked on. The main problem seems to be Google's restriction on file access in Android 11.
    I'm sure we'll learn of it immediately when it's done.

    Any news on the ios release?

    OK Google made a dumb move to remove from Android about the only thing that was still better than on IOS, but cmon, they announced they will do this years ago, and it should already have been resolved by a serious company.

    I mean, did the save games ever actually need to be located in Android/data? Could shared storage have been used? Can it be used now, at least for export/import functionality?

    I love these games, but lack of import from BG to BG2 all but renders them unusable for me. I guess MOUSE SUPPORT is much more important to implement...

    Hey me again, I don’t want to be rude. I know you guys work hard, I just wanted to know what’s the plan ahead for iOS if possible? Are you guys trying to finish the beta for Android first, or maybe you just don’t know because it’s still far away in your priorities. I would understand. So yeah if possible.. :) any news?

  • JuliusBorisovJuliusBorisov Member, Administrator, Moderator, Developer Posts: 22,017
    Hi! The iOS beta will happen only after we finish the work on the Android beta.

Says "download required" immediately changes to "starting" and never does, no matter how long i leave it, have restarted tablet several times,cleared cash,everything is up to date...have 50+ hrs into it for second time,please any assistance. Oh the tablet is a Visual Land prime 10se,android version 6.0.1
